Mexican firm Zigor Mexico SA de CV has recently started construction of a photovoltaic (PV) park worth USD 25 million (EUR 22.1m) to produce 20.1 GWh a year in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora state.
The company will install 38,114 modules at the Cajeme Solar 10M park to supply clean energy to the municipality of Cajeme and its water utility during 20 years.
In a press release last week, the municipal government said it will consume 10.1 GWh and the utility — nearly 1 GWh.
Cajeme expects to cover 70% of its power demand with the solar plant, including street lights, buildings and public places, mayor Rogelio Diaz Brown said at the start of construction. Simultaneously, the tariff will generate savings of 20% compared to the services of state-owned utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE).
